Subject: groovy!
Rather trippy and psychedelic romp through what makes drugs so bad featuring a monotone narrator that doesnt move at all (which could make for some great editing experiments) and lots and lots of talking heads. We don't know who these people are, Just their professions, whgich makes it somewhat less interesting (but is saved by the last subject bohemian teacher look). All throughout this movie, there's also some wild clips of the bar scene in SF, the street scene in SF, and Yes, Jim Nabors. In one scene you can hear the music of Bob Dylan. Not too sure of the music clearances of all of these, but all of it sure winds up becoming a little spaced out.
